Assessing the potential for biomass energy development in South Carolina by Roger C Conner( )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An assessment of the potential for developing a sustainable biomass energy industry in South Carolina was conducted. Biomass as defined by Forest Inventory and Analysis is the aboveground dry weight of wood in the bole and limbs of live trees [greater or equal to] 1-inch diameter at breast height, and excludes tree foliage, seedlings, and understory vegetation. Several possible sources of biomass were analyzed: unutilized logging residue and standing residual inventory trees on acres with tree harvesting; commercial thinning; precommercial thinning on overstocked natural sapling-seedling stands; mill residue; and urban wood waste. A range of prices from $20 to $30 per ton was established by surveys sent to South Carolina's timber producers. Prices reflect 2008 market conditions. The estimates of potential biomass distributed across these price points rose from 4.8 million tons to a total of 16.5 million tons annually. Nearly 7.7 million tons are currently being utilized. New facilities that use wood to produce energy could capitalize on the 8.8 million annual tons of unutilized biomass and operate without overly impacting existing forest industries or increasing harvest levels above 2006 estimates
Analysis of the timber situation in Florida, 1995 to 2025 by Roger C Conner( )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The nationwide demand for wood fiber nationwide is expected to increase in the foreseeable future. Harvesting restrictions on forest lands in the West have increased pressure on the South's forest resources to provide more wood. The ability of Florida and other Southern States to respond is uncertain. The authors describe the current extent, condition, and availability of Florida's timber resource and project levels of growing-stock volume, net annual growth, and annual removals to the year 2025. They base those projections on future timber demand, as represented by harvest requests. The extent of the State's timber resource is determined by 1995 estimates of forested acres and by the rate at which acres are being added or removed from the timber base due to natural or human-caused activities. Forest condition is represented by annual rates of growth and mortality and their combined effect on levels of timber volume. Timber availability is largely dictated by ownership and, for the purposes of this paper, by the age of forest stands. Future timber harvest requests for Florida are derived from projections of estimated removals throughout the South as documented in the 1993 Resources Planning Act report. The Aggregate Timberland Assessment System (ATLAS) was the model used to project future estimates of growing stock, net growth, and removals in response to increased harvest requests. Overall, projections suggest that Florida is well positioned to meet increased demand for wood, in spite of an expected shortfall of available southern yellow pine volume on forest-industry timberland by 2010. However, crucial factors influencing future timber availability in Florida are retaining the current timber base and working with ever-changing public sentiments about forest-management practices."
The state of South Carolina's Forests, 2001 by Roger C Conner( )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Forest land area in South Carolina amounted to 12.4 million acres, including 12.2 million acres of timberland. Nonindustrial-private timberland amounted to 8.9 million acres, a decline of less than 1 percent since 1993. Family forest owners dominate the private ownership group with 357,000 landowners who collectively control 7.1 million acres of forest land in the State. Timberland area under forest industry ownership continued to decline, falling from 2.3 million acres in 1993 to just over 2.0 million acres in 2001. Loblolly pine remains the predominant softwood forest type and occupied 5.0 million acres, up 16 percent since 1993. Planted pine stands amounted to 3.1 million acres and outnumbered stands of natural pine by 150,000 acres. Total volume in all live species amounted to 19.7 billion cubic feet, surpassing all previous inventory estimates. All live softwood volume increased 16 percent to 9.4 billion cubic feet, due primarily to an increase of 1.7 billion cubic feet in loblolly pine volume. Net annual growth for all live softwoods doubled since 1992, averaging 692 million cubic feet per year. Hardwood net growth rose 63 percent and averaged 306 million cubic feet per year since the previous survey. Growth exceeds removals for both species groups, reversing the negative relationship that resulted in the aftermath of Hurricane Hugo."

Estimates of biomass in logging residue and standing residual inventory following tree-harvest activity on timberland acres in the southern region by Roger C Conner( )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report provides estimates of biomass (green tons) in logging residue and standing residual inventory on timberland acres with evidence of tree cutting. Biomass as defined by Forest Inventory and Analysis is the aboveground dry weight of wood in the bole and limbs of live trees 1-inch diameter at breast height (d.b.h.), and excludes tree foliage, seedlings, and understory vegetation. Total timberland area with evidence of tree cutting averaged just over 6.0 million acres per year for all 13 Southern States over a 14-year period from 1994 to 2008. Final harvest was the primary type of cutting and averaged almost 2.3 million acres. Partial harvest and commercial thinning accounted for 1.8 million acres, and 1.7 million acres, respectively. As a result of annual tree cutting of all types in all 13 Southern States, a total of > 737 million green tons of residual biomass in standing live trees remained after harvesting. Of that volume, biomass in all-live residual inventory trees ( 1.0-inch d.b.h.) on final harvest acres amounted to nearly 457 million green tons. Biomass in rough and rotten trees from all other cutting combined totaled just over 280 million green tons. If recovered, this material could be used to help supply a biofuels industry in the South."

Southern forest inventory and analysis volume equation user's guide by Christopher M Oswalt( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reliable volume estimation procedures are fundamental to the mission of the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) program. Moreover, public access to FIA program procedures is imperative. Here we present the volume estimation procedures used by the southern FIA program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service Southern Research Station. The guide presented includes a description of the relevant variables populated in the public FIA database, a description of the set of equations used to estimate tree volume in the south, the volume equations, definition of terms, species-specific (or species group) coefficients for each equation, and examples of estimating individual tree volume
